Re: Members of Parliament

I think developments recently has shown that socialist policies are the best way forward for any developed country. Our government-run NHS employs people with vital skills honed in our state schooling system, with contributions from their earnings used to pay for the elderly for their state pension....

Re: Coronavirus

There was always going to be materials shortages so I don't see how people can't fathom this. The supply chain for pharmaceutical drugs/chemicals can involve raw materials from different countries, and even before this Corona virus took over, there's always certain materials on supply disruption for...

Re: Coronavirus

Didn't post that for plaudits but surprisingly pleased to see some nice feedback. Politics aside, it's going to be a tough time with the schools off and many aspirations have to be put on hold.

How is everyone else placed?

Re: Coronavirus

Looks like 2020 is over as a spectacle but I'm enjoying some aspects of this, such as society getting less selfish again & recognition for people who don't normally get it. My family situation is tough with my wife & I both key workers, me able to work from home but my other half having to you out i...

Re: Coronavirus

The USA could end up in a bigger mess as Trump tries to play it down in order to cause minimum effect to the economy. There we go, the capitalist way of thinking has little room for compassion while socialist decisions tend to be for the public's benefit. I find it hard to fathom why people strive t...

Re: Coronavirus

Just as well the Tories' plan to privatise the NHS hasn't fully come into action yet. It's also nice to see that the very people the Tories' disregard as "unskilled" workers, are now showing their value whilst the toffs are often useless in terms of their ability to make a contribution. Do behave, ...

Re: Coronavirus

Well said Trev, blindly following your leader without question is very dangerous. The attitude that things could be worse is also dangerous as it let's the leaders walk over us. I get it, but asking if things can be better is definitely more progressive. Thought is important, and I always try to thi...

Re: Coronavirus

3 of the intelegensia picking on 1 simple old man. If All the nations of Europe have such great leaders, how come in a lot of them the figures are as bad or worse than ours. Like a good leader, Boris listens to his lieutenants, the experts in medicinal welfare, and not to scare mongers who just ber...

Re: Coronavirus

I think things have taken too long, but that's due to leadership putting business & personal gain before public health. As said, there have been various global templates to follow but we're looking like going in the direction of Italy more than China. To get out of this mess, the Tories are turning ...

Re: Coronavirus

Times like this show that capitalism & the free market economy don't work. Communist China has seemed to have done well to control the virus this through discipline, respect, togetherness & happy working as a team. Capitalist attitudes tend to be more "me, me, me" however and things are quicker to c...
